After watching some on-line vids, I determined it was the center post, or tub, gasket at the bottom. A cheap part, and easy to snap-out the old and snap-in the new - But - I had to dissassemble the washer into individual washer component molecules. Luckily, I'd done this recently to replace the clutch drive, then the motor, then this. Not too bad, really. Washer body off (2 screws and two snap-links); agitator out (7/16" socket on extension); bang off tub nut (heavy hammer and punch); bang off drive block (hammer again); and pull tub up an out. Tub drain disconnected (pliers); pull off level sensing tube; three spring mounts (nutdriver); then just yank tub up. Poke out Centerpost gasket; snap in a new one; reassemble. Piece of cake.

used pliers to remove rings on 2 hoses, popped 2 retaining clips off of old pump, put new one on, hooked up hoses, fastened clips and was done!

every time we ran the washer there would be a small pooling of water underneath. a little investigation indicated a leaking pump seal.

My son and I leaned the washer backward and I had my son hold it while I got underneath of it and unscrewed the two hose clamps to loosen the hoses, pulled them off. Then I flipped the two clamps holding the pump in place and the pump came right off and it took about 2 minutes. I ran into a little problem putting the new pump on because I wasn't getting the drive shaft lined up quite right, otherwise the whole thing would have only taken about 10 minutes total. As it was I got the pump mounted, repositioned the clamps and then hooked up the hoses...done! The design is perfect for ease of pump replacement; kudos to the engineers who designed it!
